Fabulous event for car enthusiasts

fabulous eventCAR enthusiasts from west Wales and beyond are getting set to take part in the first ever Celtic Charity Classic Car Tour.

This exciting event will start from Pembrokeshire at midday on Friday, April 25 and will finish back in the county at 6pm on Monday (28) having travelled 400 miles throughout Ireland and Wales with overnight stops in Wexford, Kilkenny and Dublin.

Organisers Norman Mason and Gareth Jenkins said that entries and enqueries are coming in from all over Wales as well as some from England for what promises to be a fabulous event.

Participants travel on a planned route taking in miles of fabulous scenery throughout Ireland and Wales with three Classic Car Clubs in Ireland enthusiastically involved in the event promising a traditional Irish welcome as well as organising three car displays throughout the tour.

Highlights of the Tour include the Friday afternoon ferry crossing from Fishguard to Rosslare, then the overnight stop in or near Wexford, before a Saturday morning car display near The Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross.

They will then take a special route planned by Wexford Sports & Classic Car Club which includes some of the stages of the famous Circuit of Ireland Rally. They will then arrive in the beautiful Walton Park Dungarvan for a Saturday Afternoon Car Display organised be the local Yesteryear Motor Club, and travel up to Kilkenny for an overnight stop in this great city recently voted Ireland’s Tourism Town of 2013.

Midday on the Sunday they will have another organised display outside the historical Kilkenny Castle staged by The Kilkenny Motor Club, and then they head north for the last overnight stop near Newlands Cross, Dublin with a presentation and entertainment in the evening at the nearby Bewleys Hotel.

Then they catch the early morning ferry from Dublin Port to Holyhead and make the scenic route down the Welsh coast with an organised break near Aberystwyth, and then on to a buffet and presentation back in Pembrokeshire to finish this epic adventure.

Two very worthwhile charities, Cardiac Risk in the Young (in memory of local man Dean Mason) and Meningitis UK are both set to benefit from this much anticipated event which is open to all types of classic or unusual Cars (entries already vary from LandRovers to Morgans, and Volkswagon Beetles to Gilberns) if interested in details on entering please telephone Norman or Gareth on 07768 518387 or emailclassiccarrallies@yahoo.co.uk but please don’t delay as there is a 100 car limit set on this event.
